Briefly, On Evil

 

Why do we prefer villains? Even

Given one millionth of a chance, we’d do it;

Because risk is all, and because we adore

Our own gestures; because

When nobody’s looking, we all

Cast lightning.

 

 

You do, though, don’t you. You also make lightning noises. You pretend you can fire lasers and lift things with psychic powers. You do, because you must.
